As I played throughDarkspore, my opinion of the game kept changing. It's a dungeon crawler in the vein of DiabloorTorchlight, but in a futuristic setting. While many games in this genre essentially end up being Diablowith a pretty coat of paint,Darksporeintroduces a number of fresh ideas and concepts that make it a whole lot more than a clone.
With unique concepts, however, come unique problems. None are great enough to ruin the game, but noticeable flaws certainly exist. People who are willing to invest some time withDarkspore, though, will find an enjoyable, though not perfect, experience.
